Report from India

HAVE president Ron Reid has recently returned from an eight-day trip to India. During the trip, Ron was able to see seven of the most recent 10 wells drilled with donated money.
Ron was able to check out wells installed by SUCHI, our NGO located in Andhra Pradesh (near Chittoor) about 200 kilometres west of Chennai (Madras) in India.

About half of the wells were operated with electricity, while the others used hand pumps. Ron informed the board of directors on Oct. 29 that the government in India has agreed to put in tanks, taps and electrical pumps on those that were hand-pump operated.
People in the villages where HAVE’s NGOs install wells are trained in how to fix them. They are also required to set up a committee to be responsible for the well’s management.
